Due to neuropathy in my feet, I no longer drive. I’ve considered installing hand controls in my car. Is this a viable option? Is it difficult to learn to drive with hand controls?
This is a viable option for some people; however, you will need to be formally evaluated by an occupational therapy-driver rehabilitation specialist (OT-DRS) first. If you are eligible for hand-operated controls, the OT-DRS will be able to guide you in choosing the appropriate device to meet your needs, and then will arrange for its installation, and train you to properly use the device.
